the former Toot & Whistle miniature railway, Rotorua



This lasted from 1960 to 2004 when increasing volcanic activity in Kuirau Park and safety concerns led to its closure.  An application to shift it to the lakefront was narrowly defeated in a vote by the city council.

I recall the very large splendid 00 gauge model railway at the Agrodome which featured all aspects of Britain with dozens of locomotives, rolling stock and impressive scenery. Not sure where the layout went but it was all gone by the early 90's. A true labour of love.
